Letter: Wealthy will not aid middle class

Why does the middle class vote for the very wealthy to represent them in high governmental positions?

I am not saying that the rich have not earned or don’t deserve their wealth. It is just that when so many of them have achieved their goal, they seem to be overprotective of it and want more. They never seem to get enough. That is just plain greed, which is a sin.

In a way, I pity them. They never get to enjoy that good feeling of slightly enhanced poverty that one gets from doing good when you are not so sure you can afford it.

I am voting for Heidi Heitkamp in the upcoming election. She is one of us.
